Directed by Jia Zhangke

**Available Exclusively on MUBI Beginning September 30**

Jia Zhangke’s documentaries are as vital as his landmark narrative films, such as Platform, Mountains May Depart, and Unknown Pleasures. Swimming Out Till the Sea Turns Blue (Berlin ’20) finds Jia looking back from 1949 to the present, interviewing three prominent authors—Jia Pingwa, Yu Hua, and Liang Hong—where they discuss life since the Cultural Revolution, through the unrest of the late 1980s, to today. A contemplative and spacious addition to a peerless body of work.
